1) I'd like to add a bar (I don't know what it's commonly called) which allows my visitors to add my website to Digg, Yahoo, and whatever other say top 5 or top 10 bookmarking thingies are. Where can I get such a bar and what's the most efficient way to install it on my site?

2) Can such a bar be installed on any page of any website, or it has to be a blog or something?

THANKS!

Hi, bigdealioo, is your site a static site or some kind of blog or CMS? Or a custom dynamic site?

The kind of site you have will affect the code you need. The key requirement in most cases is to be able to put the page URL into the script and perhaps other page variables, too. The best kind of link not only goes to a submit page but also populates it with at least the URL and page title.

It's a dynamic PHP page that has both static and dynamic components.

I don't know anything about them - but my guess would be that you'd have to get them from the site you want to link to. I'd think that Digg, etc., would have trademark and copyright control over them. But I could be wrong.

Generally, you can get code from the individual network sites. In some cases, it's nothing more than a link to a submit form. Some, though, may let you populate the form with the URL, the Title, and perhaps more.

I've seen a few compilations of these links, but most of them are for specific blog or CMS software. You could probably look for, say, a compiliation of WordPress links and modify them as necessary to integrate with your software.

Big,

You might want to look into something like Feedburner. It has the options you're looking for but it is a monthly service you pay for.
